“There’s a profound lack of trust out there in institutions and corporations and governments. There’s a real breakdown in trust between the public and the political leadership, between the public and business as well.
We’re in a company that is all about trust, that stands for trust, and stands from an incredibly principled position.
With this explosion of information – much it wrong – never before have we had an opportunity for the trust that’s been built up over decades in our company to be more important in our proposition to our customers.
We work for business that supports transparent systems where the rule of law governs the conduct of commerce. That is in our case not only the right thing to do, it’s good business for us. It differentiates us from the pack.
We’re uniquely positioned because of our history: more than a hundred countries for more than a hundred years. We connect the global economy and that resonates around the world.
Every single thing we do underscores and builds upon our reputation for integrity, our reputation for doing the right thing, our reputation for trust.”
